I really don't think our window is open for the cup yet.
I think we're 2 years away.
In 2 years, Price will still be in his prime, so will Subban, Pacioretty and Eller.
Galchenyuk - Gallagher will probably be mature enough for a good run.
Probably 2 out of Pateryn, Beaulieu and Tinordi will make the team by then.
Bouillon, Gionta, Briere, Diaz, and hopefully, DD and Bourque, will probably be out the way in the next 2 years.
Then it will be time to start trading 1st pick for rentals, or hoping for a splash on the UFA market.
Until then, i think the Habs COULD become a 2nd-3rd round team if MT/MB start to use his players the right way....which it's not the case right now but that can change comes playoff times.
We.re a good season team and mostly because we're fast and small which help us getting tons of PP opportunities and we got a good PP squad and top goalie.
But comes playoff time, we all know teams will be very discipline and the referees won't make half the calls they do right now.....and at 5 on 5 we suck.
Playoff is a 5-on-5 game.
